What is the best setting to set the 868 via hdmi for this scaler.
The HD+ cannot interpret interlaced HDMI signals. I would run an interlaced component connection rather than HDMI. If you run HDMI then you are using the deinterlacing in the player, making the HD+ a bit redundant really!!!
This changed with the latest firmware, th HD+ now accepts DVI/HDMI 480i/576i in RGB 4:4:4 format. Specifially mentions the 59AVi which is the US 868, if th 989 is like its predecessor it should work too.

In that case ignore what I said!!
So I just need to changed the settings in my player to output 480i/576i over hdmi?
If you have the latest firmware installed in the HD+, then yes as long as you choose RGB 4:4:4 format.
The other nice addition in the software upgrade was the inclusion on the 4 configureable outputs which allows multiple resolutions to be assigned to 2 different displays connected to the digital and analogue outputs.
About bloody time. Although the Lumagen has eight memories LOL!
Do any of the usual suspect scalers have triggers? If not, I guess a custom RS232 solution is required.
I briefly flirted with i576 HDMI from 868 into my hd+, but I found p576 HDMI better, sadly I noticed that there was alot of interlace shimmering going on when outputting i576, less when film mode on the HD+ was selected, but still quit a bit. My conclusion was the pioneer was a better deinterlacer than the IScan. Of coarse the HD+ scales to 720P much better than the dvd player.
Well that bothers me, because I was thinking of getting an 868AVi instead of the usual Denon because you can get 576i over HDMI for a scaler.
This defeats the point of having a separate de-interlacer. Has anyone else seen this?
Does this mean that you've had to ditch using HDMI in favour of component?
No, just export 576p from the dvd player.
I might give 576i-component a go if I ever get some decent cables. I assume RGBs scart to hd+ is a no-no on quality grounds?
RGBs shouldn't be too bad, but component would probably be better just for the connectors.
I just tried RGBs with a Squart cable I had lying around and the picture was much too soft & blury, I've gone straight back to DVI
